Scout Leader in California Accused of Abuse …

Have you noticed a pattern here? Whether it’s a congressman, priest or other leader in the community, those that are on the pulpit screaming out against gays are usually the ones in the closet and end up getting caught with children? Why is that?

A scout leader who once sued the City of Berkeley for challenging a national Boy Scout ban on members who are gay or atheist has been arrested on felony charges that for at least five years he sexually abused young males in the troops he led.

Sgt. Mary Kusmiss of the Berkeley police said the scout leader, Eugene A. Evans, 64, a retired high school teacher and for 35 years leader of the Berkeley Sea Scouts, was arrested at his home in nearby Kensington on Tuesday after investigators identified four youths, ages 13 to 17, who said they had been sexually abused by him.
